High Serum Ferritin level,648ng/ml,found on routine test.I was taking iron supp for anemia,which I will stop now.Am I in trouble?Should I do anything?
Hemochromatosis?: This could be very serious, resulting in liver disease, diabetes, and heart disease. Avoid iron supplements, vitamins with iron. DO NOT take vitamin C supplements [food is OK] because they facilitate iron absorption. You need further testing and consult with a hematologist. There are many types of anemias. Iron deficiency is but one of them. Iron supplements treat iron deficiency, not anemia. See ...Read more
Multiple possible.: If a patient has had recent surgery, that might be the cause. B12 and Folic Acid deficiencies can cause a high MCV (ie, it can represent a nutritional cause). Other possibilites include hemolysis (breaking of red blood cells), kidney disease and other chronic diseases. ...Read more
Can a multivitamin with iron cause a high blood iron 140 (60-100) for a toddler after having an anemia?
Diagnosed with anemia. I take 65mg iron twice a day. Hemoglobin is now normal but RDW is 20.3 and RBC in urine is 3-5 (high)?
May take time : for your RDW to normalize. Your hemoglobin will return to normal faster than your RDW. The RDW is most useful when it is reported with the MCV to determine the cause of anemia. I would also want to know WHY you became iron deficient. Since you are post menopausal, you should not really be losing a lot of iron. Have you had a hem-occult test? 3-5 RBC in a UA is not high, but it is not normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How do u treat low hemoglobin(12.6)? Is this anemia? Take iron&if so how much? I read iron is no good 4 u. Rbc: 4.17, hematocrit: 37.4, high rdw: 15.
Results: 12.6 hemoglobin with a 37.4 hematocrit may be normal for you. This would depend on your prior results and your hemoglobin type--sickle trait patients may have these numbers and be perfectly fine. Is there any history of blood in stools or urine? Too much iron is not good, but appropriate doses for some conditions as recommended by your doctor would be helpful when prescribed. Good luck. ...Read more
In 2016 my CBC mild anemia with HGB @ 11.9 and slightly low everything else, but RDW @ 15.1. Now, 2019 and my cbc shows HGB @ 8.7, much lower everything else, but high RDW @ 17.1.. Also my iron saturation is 4 w/ high TIBC & UIBC. Is this dangerous?
Iron deficiency: This combination of lab results shows an iron deficiency anemia most likely from chronic blood loss. In your case blood loss from monthly periods is the most likely cause. I would also check your B12 and folic acid levels and stool sample for signs of occult blood, which will hopefully be ok. Your physician or a hematologist will treat you with appropriate iron supplements and get follow-up labs. ...Read more
Should i be concerned about cancer with having a high platelet count of 816, 000? I also have iron deficency anemia. I can't stop worrying.
Recheck it: Iron deficiency could be the cause but it is important to follow up on it. Please recheck it after correction of iron deficiency. Then get a CBC and see what changes have taken place. Also watch WBC count. If the platelet count persists above 500, 000 then you need to see a hematologist for further evaluation. ...Read more
Female with Hep C. Low C3, low Iron saturation (11%), normal Iron, high Tansferrin (3.8 g/L) high TIBC 84 umol/L. Is this simple anemia or smthg else?
Does anemia cause irreg hr? My machine gives the irreg hr signal but heart workup was normal. Hemo in canada val is 116 and iron is 8. Tibc high RDW HGH MCV low. Im worried. More tests being done.
No: Anemia does not cause irregular rhythm. Your heart w/u can be normal and you can still have extra beats which are present to some degree in all normal people. You have iron deficiency anemia which is due to blood loss and, in your age group. Most likely a result of menstruation. Take iron supplements. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ferritin=364.7ng/ml, Transferrin Saturation=57% (caused by chronic mild Hemolytic Anemia of unknown cause), should I be worried about the high iron?
Ferritin: Ferritin is the storage form of iron, rather than free serum iron in the blood. That value of 364 ng/ml falls within the normal range of most lab assays. The transferrin sat is a little high but likely that is due to the hemolysis. Basically it just says that 57% of the iron binding sites on the transferring molecules are being used. Abnormal but an expected finding in your case. ...Read more
Had CBC done and I am stressing about high platelet count of 816, 000.Dr never mentioned it just said iron deficency anemia. Should i be very worried?
Recent blood work. Wbc, Rbc, hgb, hct, mcv normal. Low mchc. High Rbw. What does this point to? Had iron def anemia in past.
You can look these: all up, e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mean_corpuscular_hemoglobin_concentration, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_blood_cell_distribution_width, etc. If the MCV is ?er Nl, combined with ?ed MCHC these could be c/w some mild Fe deficiency currently. If Reticulocyte count is elevated, this would be c/w the?ed RDW due to an ?ed mix of younger, immature plus older cells. These values just clues. ...Read more
Low serum iron 36 and very high ferritin level 1,171. Is this anemia of chronic disease? High liver enzymes and ALP 476. What's wrong?
Need more info: A complete history is needed! What other Med problems u have? The possibilities are many: anemia w elevated ferritin and normal MCV could be chronic disease. The elevated liver enzymes need imaging and if hep B and C were r/out, maybe a liver biopsy. Many chronic conditions like Rheumatoid arthritis,Lupus, autoimmune liver disease, may cause these findings. Did you mean Alfa fetoprotein?.see PCP ...Read more
